How long does it take to get a dental implant?
A Long-Term Solution For Missing Teeth
The procedure for dental implants is not instant, but our patients are always thrilled with their results, making it worth the wait. One of the main reasons we recommend dental implants in our Albuquerque dental office is because they are a long-term and permanent solution to the problem of missing teeth. Dental implants are almost like having your natural tooth again!
Dental implant procedures are relatively quick. Precise planning for the surgery will help Dr. Essenmacher identify the ideal location for the oral surgeon to place dental implants, and the surgery itself takes only about an hour to ninety minutes.
Patients report little discomfort during and after implant surgery. The longest part of the dental implant process is waiting for your implants to fuse with your natural bone over the course of 3-6 months. Implants, made of biocompatible titanium, will actually integrate with your natural bone, giving them a stable and permanent foundation.
Once the implants healing process is complete, Dr. Essenmacher will place a custom porcelain dental crown atop the dental implant post, completing your smile and improving dietary choices.
